Jon Stewart had on Papa Bear, Bill O'Reilly, Wednesday on The Daily Show to ask him if he would indeed quit his job if his taxes go up. Bill said it was all a big joke. Ha, ha! Of course it was. Billo knows his audience well and the faux outrage he uses to whip them up into a frenzy about taxes and government spending. But on this web-based portion of this interview, Jon made him admit that he's not against taxing the job creators more as long as government spending is cut. That's a complete repudiation (I know you thought I might delve into Palin-ese on that word) of the entire meme being pushed by the GOP's 2012 Presidential candidates, their surrogates and their congressional members. He also agreed that some government regulations of Wall Street are necessary because he doesn't like "those" people very much.
